Cheesy Fajita Open-Faced Sandwich

Cheesy Fajita Sandwich
Here's a lunch that can be prepared in under 5 minutes. We had fajitas for dinner the night before so I put away two little portions for lunch the next day. The chicken breast strips come already cooked with fajita spices and can be found in the frozen section of the supermarket. Combined with strips of colourful sliced onions and sweet & hot peppers, the chicken fajita strips are laid on top of a mixture of grated Mexican cheese, mayonnaise and red pepper flakes with a sprinkling of fresh herbs.. Once toasted in the toaster-oven, the cheese melts and forms a creamy base for the chicken fajita. These open-faced sandwiches taste great on crusty Italian bread or tortillas.

Serve with a fresh salad and/or fruit. This meal is served with a 3 Bean Salad.

1 cup chicken fajita strips, cooked & frozen
1 cup sweet multi-coloured peppers, sliced
1 serrano pepper, sliced
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
2 Tbsp. grated Mexican cheese
2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tsp. crushed dried red peppers
2 green onions, chopped
1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
2 flour tortillas or 4 slices of toasted bread

  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Toss chicken, peppers and onions in the hot oil until cooked but still crisp.
  3. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Mix grated cheese, mayonnaise and red peppers in a bowl.
  5. Spread on tortillas or bread, making sure to work all the way to the edges.
  6. Top with prepared fajita strips and sprinkle with green onions & cilantro.
  7. Toast in a toaster-oven just until cheese melts.
  8. Serve right away with a salad and/or fruit.
